PAHO election

Dear Editor

I would like to ask: where are the new ideas for PAHO?

Certainly not in the writings prepared by Dr Sepulveda for his campaign.

On the other side, he has no proven experience with any international program so far, much less in conducting a serious Institution like PAHO.

Latin America and the Caribbean are not places for an ambitious, inexperienced person to try out "new ideas".

The professionals working for Public Health in the region and those working with PAHO, fully committed with their work, like Dr Mirta Roses, are well prepared for the challenges facing our countries in the near future.

Dr Llanos also worked with PAHO before...he should knows that!
